Many Textbooks Are Available
Many 100 level and 200 level textbooks are available on reserve for checkout for 2 hours. They can be found by clicking the Course Reserves button in OneSearch, and searching by course name, course number, course instructor, course ID, course department, author, or title.
You can also click the Library Catalog (SDSU) button to search the library’s holdings by title or author name to search for your textbook, in case we have the book but it's not on reserve. The library is not likely to have the most recent edition of your textbook as academic libraries in the U.S. typically don't purchase textbooks.
Not finding your book? Try logging into OneSearch with your SDSUid and click the Library Catalog (CSU) button. You can request books from other CSU libraries thru our CSU+ service. Or from other San Diego libraries thru Circuit.
Not finding the book in CSU+? Search WorldCat and request the book thru interlibrary loan.
Other Options for Getting Your Textbook
Remember, the SDSU bookstore sells textbooks and has options for renting copies of textbooks to students. You can also buy electronic copies of textbooks through the SDSU bookstore. Contact the bookstore for more information.
